Technology Helsinki

Lead Technology Consultant

  • Are you looking for a next-level challenge where you work on completely new things that drive our industry forward?
  • Do you love complex, meaningful problems and finding novel solutions to them?
  • Are you deeply knowledgeable and passionate about technology – and aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and do what needs to be done?

Our award-winning tech community is looking for a Lead Technology Consultant to join our office in Helsinki.

The cases you’ll work on will be at the very heart of the client’s business – for example the core product or a business-critical system. Your drive and experience will be crucial to solving the problem.

As a lead technology consultant at Reaktor, you’ll

Solve new, meaningful problems that have no ready-made answers

Your daily tasks include: 

  • Getting to work on formidable new technology problems that are essential to the client’s business
  • Working on a wide range of demanding projects, each one different and mandating a different approach. Some will be focused on navigating the business domain and decomposing the problems into high-level technological solutions while others will require rolling your sleeves up and diving into the implementation yourself
  • Working on cases in scalable, high availability, and data intensive systems in complex business domains
  • Choosing the right tool for the job, whether that means deploying to the cloud or an on-premises cluster, using a modern JVM language or Go – or anything else that solves the customer’s need
  • Working together with your teammates to make the client’s product the best it can be, by any means necessary

You are 

A technologist at heart who still loves to code

To thrive in this position, you’ll need: 

  • To deeply understand the customer’s business to best advise them on how digital initiatives can be used to achieve their business goals
  • A track record of delivering complex and demanding projects from beginning to end
  • Extensive experience in different types of technology projects and environments including experience with coding and a knowledge of modern languages and frameworks
  • Understanding of complex architectures and modern infrastructures
  • The ability to take initiative to make things happen and drive things forward
  • Fluency in either English or Finnish and good communication skills (written & spoken), as will as the necessary permits for working in Finland
